The compact Ami Nuudo 18 is a minimalist travel tin with a classic silver color, housing an 18-well palette, a mixing palette and a nifty little Winsor&Newton sable blend pocket brush. It is designed to help artists who find themselves constantly on the go and would like a small, light palette handy for when inspiration strikes.
With its 18-well configuration, you have more choices of colors to pack in your travel tin. This 3 5/8"x 2 3/8" tin normally holds 14 half pans, so my 24-well palette lets you carry 4 more colors and pack a brush, too! The mixing palette is also sufficiently thin, and you can pack up to 2 mixing palettes inside.
This palette is designed with the objective of being able to carry as many colors as possible in a small case. Think of it as an upgraded dot 'card'. It is ideal for working on smaller pieces or journals, on works where one would not normally lay down big washes or use wide brushes, or as a secondary or travel palette when bag weight/space is a priority. It is NOT designed to be used as a main palette and will be insufficient as a studio palette, or for use with brushes with tips wider than 12mm. I recommend this palette if your paper/pad/journal is 5"x 8" or smaller, with round brushes size 6 or smaller, filberts and flats with widths of 10mm or smaller.
The 24-well palette is handmade by manually pouring liquid urethane on manually cast moulds. The moulds were cast from 3D-prints of palette configurations that I custom-designed and modelled specifically for each type of tin in my shop. Because of these manual aspects of production, it is not uncommon to find imperfections such as an occasional bubble or uneven bottom. I will ensure that none of the flaws affect the usability of the palettes.
